Cartoon Guide to Geneticsby Larry Gonick
Synopses & Reviews
Have you ever asked yourself:
Are spliced genes the same as mended Levis?
Watson and Crick? Aren't they a team of British detectives?
Plant sex? Can they do that?
Is Genetic Mutation the name of one of those heavy metal bands?
Asparagine? Which of the four food groups is that in?
Then you need The Cartoon Guide to Genetics to explain the important concepts of classical and modern genetics—it's not only educational, it's funny too!
Illustrates, simplifies, and humor-coats the important principles of classical and modern genetics and their experimental bases, with amusing anecdotes about how the ancients tried to explain inheritance and sex determination.
